Could you please answer this it's for a Report.....?

Cochlear Implants

This survey is for my sociology class where I am doing a report about cochlear implants. I am comparing the ideas and opinions formed based on up-bringing and the understanding of Deaf Culture.

1. What is your hearing status?

2. What devices, if any do you use to assist you with your hearing on a daily basis?

3. What type of school did you attend? (Mainstream, Private, Institution, Residential, etc.)

4. Do you know anyone with a cochlear implant?

5. Do you agree with implantation of infants and young children (under age 6)?

6. Do you agree with implantation for older children (ages 6-12)?

7. Do you agree with implantation for teenagers (13-19)?

8. Do you agree with implantation for adults?

9. Have you heard anything, positive or negative about the actual benefits of a Cochlear Implant?

10. What is your general opinion on the implants?

11. Would you be implanted if you had the option?

12. What if you were implanted as a child?

13. Would you want to go back in time and be implanted as a child or infant?

14.Would you implant your child?
